IM Robert Hungaski convincingly won the 4th New York International Chess Tournament and claimed his second GM norm. Hungaski finished with 8 points from nine games, full point and a half ahead of second placed GM Jaan Ehlvest, and netted 5000 USD in prize.

Ehlvest is clear second and takes 2500 USD as a prize. Ten players shared the third place with 6 points each. Among them is GM Timur Gareev, winner of the recent Chicago Open.

FIDE Masters Kassa Korely and Aleksandr Ostrovskiy have both earned IM norms.
